Independence Day?

After the footy I had a text from a friend which read "That's twice we've come out of Europe in a week.  At least we had a vote the first time"

all would seem to have pretty much worked out as Mr Cameron desired in 2015 - including the getting rid of Mr Corbyn who wishes to protect what remains of public services.See original post

 I don't see why Cameron, or the Tory party in general, would want to get rid of Corbyn.  He's the greatest gift they have been handed in many a year.  As long as he's leading Labour they don't stand a snowball's chance in hell of getting elected.

Complete and utter shambles.

I'll leave it to the individual to decide whether I'm referring to the footie, the Labour Party, the Referendum, the after effect thereof, all of the above.

Eureka!!!!!!!!  Subscription copy arrived today - via Royal Mail.  I don't know about other areas, but delivery by courier clearly doesn't work where I live.

 I wish I had stayed in Botswana, where they are busy building a union with their African neighbours.

See original post

 One of which is that haven of democracy - Zimbabwe!  I realise they don't have any opposition politicians there, at least they don't last very long, but I wonder how they would be treated if they tried criticising the Zimbabwean leader.

Love it. Now all these countries can converse in French/German with lots of French and German translators.

See original post

 From what we see recently, only the Germans and French have any clout anyway so would it make any difference if the other countries didn't understand what was going on?

   The UK is still a member of the EEA which requires members to adopt EU rules for the free movement of persons, goods, services and capital within the EU so, on the face of it, not a lot will change as far as trade and EU immigration are concerned.

See original post

 My understanding is that although being a member of th EEA requires agreement to free movement of people, we would no longer have to treat persons from the EU in the same way as UK nationals for benefit purposes.  The concessions 'won' by Cameron were only short term, intended to shut the public up (and clearly failed miserably to do so).  If migrants without employment were unable to get money, or any other benefits, they would be far less likely to come here in the first place.  The UK has been seen as a soft touch because benefit payments are so much higher than they would receive in their home country.

Those coming here to a job would still be able to come.

We wouldn't be forced to implement EU directives either, if all we sign up for is a trade related agreement.
